Matt received his MASc from TMU, co-supervised by Professor Russell Richman (TMU) and Professor Marianne Touchie (U of T). His research focused on analyzing the energy and emissions reduction and indoor air quality improvement potential of a compartmentalization and ventilation system retrofit strategy for existing high-rise residential buildings.
This project evaluated the energy savings associated with suite compartmentalization and in-suite ventilation systems retrofits in a high-rise residential building.
